size would have the same spending obligations as laid out in the law, and he and i have had many conversations where he's made it clear where that was always his understanding, and late 2010, several workers and their advocates came to my office to explain that in their view, employers had found and were exploiting a loophole in the health and security ordinance, a small number of businesses of employers were voiding the majority of their spending requirement by allocating money to what is known as a health reimbursement account. often, using these accounts to severely restrict the types of services that the accounts could be used for often providing no notice of the existence of the accounts to their workers and then reclaiming the majority of money allocated to those accounts at the end of the year. we also discovered that many of these employers were profiting from the law by charging surcharges in the name of employee health care and then pocketing the majority of the money that was collected from consumers in san francisco. so, given that workers were not receiving the healt
by federal law, it's not an easy solution, but the vast majority of san francisco businesses provide insurance and the vast, vast majority of son fra*ns businesses are spending required amounts of money, every survey and report by your agency show that and supervisor campos has acknowledge hated but there is an issue with some categories of business, but we're working together, small business associations, the chamber on educating employers and employees on the rights and obligations under this law. we've worked with television ads on cable television, the city, websites, direct communication with members, thousands of employers have been communicated with by our organizations and by the city to understand how to make this work for the employee and how to make it work financially for the employer because you have to remember in the last half a dozen years, the cost of small business to employ entry level workers in san francisco has gone up 50%. that is health mandate, sick leave, minimum wage, things we believe in, things that as san franciscans we support but things that have a tre
surveillance by the federal government and they are challenging the law that allows electronic surveillance, this wiretapping because they're concerned that their case will be picked up. they're claiming to have standing to challenge this law because even though the surveillance might be directed overseas to people they're talking to get their dedication will get picked up in the course of that surveillance and so therefore they have the right to challenge it in court. that is the standing issue we we are dealing with. just to get to the merits for a minute, and the aftermath of the exposÉ in the mid-70's about various abuses in the intelligence community and in short in short is set up a system by which the executive branch would have to go to the court surveillance court here in d.c. and get permission when they wanted to do wiretapping for national security purpose to give sworn intelligence information. this is way of making sure that the court, there was a court that had to check and had a role in reviewing the government's effort to do this wiretapping which they ended up using in in
don't want to do is send them back with something passed, and signed into law, that's going to cause them to sort of spin around chasing their tails and ultimately the program doesn't happen because what we've inserted in is a poison pill. i'm not interested in putting any poison pills in here so i have some questions, i'm trying to ferret out whether particularly the second one -- i guess one and two, are poison pills, and also if there are ways that they don't have to be poison pills. so i guess my first question is -- we know that state law requires an opt-out. there's now an amendment that requires, in a way, sort of a preliminary or initial opt-in to show a certain level of support before proceeding. i have -- my question is, for whoever can answer it, whether we are able to do that. to have sort of a -- some form of an opt-in that precedes the opt-out. >> deputy city attorney teresa mueller. supervisor, it's absolutely right that state law prohibits an opt-in for this program and requires opt-out. and our view of this requirement is that it's a requirement for how the program w
law would put them at ease. and rosemary fought alongside for this bill. >> they were under pressure because california changed it's contract. and said if employees under this car, you better find them. >> companies say they're complying with the bill, violateors subject to criminal prosecution and the bill will pass a support during the current session. for callie, it was that day. >> i couldn't sit still and let them be forgoten and let other families be at risk. for a failed policy. >> the company says technology has progressed and now, it can block the renting of recalled vehicles and the companies they will file offenders. >> this is a tough line on this. >> she did. >> and now, for an update breaking news at 4:00 a young child is being transferred right now to a trauma center. she was hit riding her bike on a novato street. it happened near sandy creek road. there is police say the man driving hit the girl, you can see impact to the vehicle. the little girl was riding her bike. he is cooperating with this investigation. and that little girl is in critical condition. >>
is from before the change of law took effect that places restrictions on the ability to give us the health surcharge when we're not spending the money on health care, etc.. >> i'm matthew cohen. i'm glad to be before the supervisors, for one thing, this is the information we had, and when we saw this information, we found that even though we knew more information was going to come out subsequent to that, this is really indicative of a process which we felt was not something that you can merely look away from even with the amendment that was passed, and for one thing, i am kind of concerned that even though money is supposed to be set aside for workers and if you're using the hra's, if the private employers and a considerable amount of them employ their own accounts, this discourages employees from coming in and basically you're telling their employers what you need the medical expenses for, it's an invasion of privacy, i would rather, it's nothing we saw in the revised legislation that actually standardized guidelines, as far as we know, employers can still insist on whatever they can rest
has until tuesday to rule on a controversial voter i.d. law. at issue is whether the new law disenfranchises voters. some people face obstacles just trying to get the photo identification card. >> reporter: was this easy to get or too hard to get? >> it was very hard to get. >> reporter: 68-year-old doris clark was turned down three times, applying for her pennsylvania voter i.d. card. and every time, she says, the state wanted another document. original birth certificate, original social security card, then she needed her husband's death certificate when a clerk demanded proof of her married name. after four tries she got the card but resented all the obstacles. >> you feel like why am i going through all these things? i'm not bin laden's wife. you know? i've been here all my life. i've been voting since it's been legal for me to vote. >> reporter: clark's testimony in state court in pennsylvania represents a growing legal challenge to voter i.d. laws, specifically how difficult some states have made it for voters to actually get the cards, especially voters who are low inco
. to me there is absolutely no reason why any law should be an opt-in program such as this. it smells of coercion and that's not something i'm willing to vote for, for my residents in district 2 and for all representatives in san francis san francisco. supervisor campos, i too trust in ed harrington, his qualifications are impeccable but i want concrete numbers if i'm going to vote on nothing, or use that to vote on something and the fact is we have no numbers in front of us, they've never been presented to us, and to articulate that creating local power is a biproduct of this is a fallacy. i think when people articulate that and tell other folks that is part of what we're voting on today, that is untrue. i appreciate the fact that people have differences of opinion about how it may or may not be financed in the future but it is not on the table today and should not be articulated as such. i appreciate people's comments. to me it's a concept of choice. i think having an opt-out program for the residents is absolutely the wrong approach. >> president chiu: supervisor wiener. >> supervi
all along. the bottom line on mitt romney is he's proud of his massachusetts health care law. there's part of him at wants to defend it, there's part of him that's always wanted to defet,nd hunms ruing in a republican primary where he couldn't defend it as forthrightly as i think what his heart would have wanted to do. so he twisted himself up in a lot of knots. i think there's some theoretical way in which you could make a federalist argument, but he hasn't made that argent nsisntlyhe hohatop sa the individual mandate is a conservative policy. it was invented at the heritage foundation and embraced by conservatives as recently as a decade ago. he could have made the argument for health care and said tt's what the conservative position was. hen't ve t gtoo that. he's ended up in this bizarre position where he's had to pirouette on this craz tightrope where he says my law is great, but the federal law, which the core element of which is the individual maate, is bad. it's not intellectually tenable, and it's politally ridiculous. >> here he is doing it again on the tax sue. ustheahat
ago and they say proposition 209 is the reason black contractors are not working there. the law has stepped in the way where, today, african-american contractors are not -- not one job in san francisco, are african-americans working on. but a japanese company is controlling 90% of the work in san francisco -- homes, webcore and they do not hire african-american. and i'm saying that something's got to be done. and you guys -- the supervisors, and whether you know it or not, one day this is going to boil over. and when it does, everybody will say they don't know anything about it. but as i was telling some guys the other day, most of you don't know, i'm a veteran, and a disabled american, a war veteran. and i don't understand how i can be in the military, and fight for a country that they got laws now that prevent us from working in it. something is wrong with this whole thing. and particularly the city of st. francis to say there's not one, not one african-american firm working on any job in san francisco. >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> i live on 6th street between ho

to be notified of their child having an abortion is required to pass a law. does that mean as a parent do i like it? do i like plan "b" or parents not being notified, no, but what i like less is the united states has the highest incidence of teen pregnancy in the industrialized world. they drop babies into toilets and not prepared to raise. >> bill: you see the lesser of two evils. i disagree with you. >> i totally agree with you that parents should have the ability to make all decisions, especially this one with their children. here is the headline for me. do you want to know that an in all of new york city only one to two percent of all parents decide to opt out of this program. first of all you should be opting in. that is not wait it works. only 1-2% opted out, which means 99% parents --. >> bill: i don't think they know about it. the other thing. >> that is criminal. >> bill: parents got to be active but the other thing is statutory rape. as a judge the state is saying, that is what new york is saying, we don't care about statutory rape. if a 12-year-old is pregnant that is a crime but we'r

information, is there -- one of the stipulations, and this is a sticking point, was what laws should be passed for sharing information, for protecting privacy and making sure industry isn't held liable for sharing information. about breaches that might have affected its customers. so if there's no legislation, what can agencies still do? where can they improve and trying to share information? >> currently secretary napolitano has the authority under the protection of critical infrastructure information, but a company can voluntarily submit information and they cannot be exposed to foia. it cannot be exposed to regulatory requests. and that data can be protected by, under the secretary's current authorities, and enable government to work with industry to address risk, to create actionable information which we refer to as actionable intelligence so that owners and operas can take the national -- the necessary steps. it can be derived from classified sources. it can be provided by private sector but it can be provided by other departments and agencies. so that currently exist. expanding the aware
in child labor laws? is he against the civil rights bill for public accommodations where you can't close your bathrooms to black people? what kind of laws is this guy for? apparently nothing. >> well, i think that you're probably onto something there, but the notion -- >> it sounds like his principle is don't mess with business on anything. >> i think that the notion that it would be -- that it is interfering with someone's freedom to say to them you can't discriminate against someone that is doing the same work just because they're a woman. you know, we've had an outpouring of support in the last 48 hours. claire mccaskill.com, people are coming there and they're really jazzed up about this notion that i was -- that i'm not ladylike. i am a fater, chris. i'm proud to be a fighter for missouri families and there's a lot at stake in this election and believe me, it's not over. missouri will be tough, this will be close. >> did you ever have a defense attorney say to you when you're putting a bad guy in prison, you're not being ladylike there? you just did your job. this is not a hard one
in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a anchor tenant because they don't want to have their brand integrity challenge door product challenge and they are trying to deliver the best product at the best point possible to get more market share and global dominance. so when we talk of a trusted suppliers that one set of suppliers and that's another set of getting into the to process these are both very important. >> dennis was speaking from mississippi in case you couldn't tell from my accent. when you're eating cat fish you don't know if it came from the delta or the vietnam. the food source is truly global but with extending that to deny what you just a little bit further we do have the food and drug administration, the united states department of agriculture regulations, and so to extend your analogy is there a role for regulation in cyberspace? what are the proper roles as melissa mentioned the policy levers to read this is to each of the panelists. >> as i said at
this or that but at the end of the day, so long as the law allows them to collect money and not necessarily spend it and you don't define expenditure the way we were trying to do, this is going continue to be a problem because there are ways that they're always going to be able to manipulate the wording of the surcharge, so i think that's a problem and i think that the d.a. only confirms what we've always said. >> president chu? >> i had two observations as i compared our city attorney's response to the same question, our city attorney said, yes, consumer fraud is committed, you clarified the burden of proof required in the criminal context from my perspective, i think that makes sense, these type of consumer fraud cases are pursued from our civil attorney, i wanted to make that first point, but secondly, i think what ms. crevette was saying, rather than having a surcharge for health care, they broaden that language and said it was a surcharge for the cost of doing business in san francisco, that's a very different set of issues and it might be a set of issue that is we may want to tackle at a later point b
. the issues people have, like this is an opt out program, that is state law. a continuance will not change state law. if you're looking for us to try to find another vendor, been there, done that, several times. the only group that's available is shell. the only group that was available to marine that made it work is shell. some day, some time, this may be different. but that is not in any near future. i am not telling you it is the perfect program, but i am tell you it's the only one that we believe is possible in any kind of near-term future. and i don't see how it changes. >> supervisor campos: thank you. >> president chiu: supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: thank you, president chiu. i just want to voice my strong support for the clean power sf program and i want to thank general manager ed harrington and his staff, barbara hale, and others, for their great work. also, for the staff, for lafco, nancy miller, and jason freid for all the great work together, the sponsor of this work today, supervisor campos, who has picked up the baton from ross mirkarimi, who picked it up from tom

, disagree partially. under the previous law, this could be have been a case under the recent amendment ts, this issue was addressed in a var iet of ways including posting and quarterly notice requirements so employees are aware of their benefits and how to use them and by requiring all unused monies to remain with the employee for 24 months, the law now requires that any benefit plan must be structured adds to be reasonably calculated to benefit the employee, olse has the authority to not be designed to benefit the employee and it should not be a qualified..[reading].. the new law that went into effect in january 1, 2012 pertains to that. they are administered by a third party according to to olse's data, 85% of employees use third party administrators or provide the type of benefit that would not be able to provide health information, many employers build in other safeguards that make sure that private health information remains confidential. and then with regards to the fourth response to recommendations around disallowing the use of employee hra options, i would recommend that it state

[applause] >> good afternoon. first, if any of you have ever wondered what an ls -- and elected officials sounds like with anesthesia and his mouth, i want to let you know that i got out of a dental chair 20 minutes ago after a few hours of dentists work. but i wanted to give a few remarks of how i think we are doing. i'm very much more are optimistic about how we're doing than four years ago. i read an article from the chronicle and it said that the candidates disagreed on everything, except for the need to crack down on entertainment violence. i did not propose anything for the first six months until there were half a dozen people affected. that was followed by a terrific shooting, which was then followed by an incident in union square. i want to take a moment and thank the san francisco police department for your input. if we pass legislation to require additional security requirements and plans. we pass legislatio
the license transfer to them should the modifications be declined. some of these laws on the books a little archaic, and i will give you an example. we now have live entertainment in san francisco, which allows amplified music until 10:00 p.m. if the conditions has no entertainment, and the entertainment, it also includes this limited live provision. we have determined in the city that this legislation is good -- good legislation. there's no conditional use requirement to have this. a lot of people today want to have food, drink, and be able to have some music. how can we get the limited live entertainment excluded from the know amplified or no live entertainment excluded on the transfers? >> that is going to mostly driven locally. most of the conditions you'll ever see on an abc license are because we rely, to a great extent, on the police department and local officials to determine what is best for their communities. i'm not trying to pin this on you guys or blame you guys, but we do try to work with you. we do not tend to want to overrule the police department very often. now that said,
